Christmas is always a popular time of year for weddings, particularly for those couples who have family abroad as everyone can get a really decent chunk of time off work.
If you’re one of those couples who are considering a Christmas wedding but are a little put off by the prospect of having to battle with fake snow and arrival on a sleigh, then please read this post. I can assure you that some of the most magical weddings I’ve flowered have been in the festive window and here are a few trends that have worked:
- TIME FOR KINGS
Cait and Tom, married in December, mentioned to me that Cait was originally from Australia. This lovely couple wanted to keep to icy hues or pinks, blues and purples, so I just couldn’t resist including the Australian king of all flowers in Cait’s bridal bouquet; a blush pink King Protea. It encompassed the regal beauty of the festive season, and my, did Cait look incredible.
- CRIMSON POPS
Lauren and Alex got married just three days before Christmas day itself. They were keen for their wedding to look festive but not at all ‘obvious’. Including pops of crimson (naomi red roses) hinted at that red suit we all know so well but kept things classy as they were nestled in amongst jewel-coloured blooms (such as purple astrantia and blue eryngium).
- NEW YEARS
Lucy and Khaleel decided to tie the knot on New Year’s Eve, welcoming in a new year with all of their friends and family. Plus, there’ll be no excuse for forgetting their anniversary! Inspired by fireworks and all things sparkly, we ran with a warm palette of burnt oranges and creams to create a really unique floral décor.
